    Baron Gautsch shipwreck after 100 years: Picture tribute to Adriatic sea wreck

    The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Baron Gautsch, an Austro-Hungarian ship which sank in the northern Croatian Adriatic sea, will be marked on August 13, 2014. The ship, originally used to service passenger lines, had been leased by the Austro-Hungarian Army following the July 1914 outbreak of World War One to transport troops, only to run into a minefield off the Brijuni islands less than a month later. Estimates say between 240 and 390 people perished in the sinking, making it one of the biggest losses of life in World War One. Today the shipwreck lies at a depth of 40 metres off the coast of Rovinj and is said to be the most popular site for divers in the Adriatic.

    Raging bulls lock horns in Fujairah

    Every Friday at around 4pm, crowds gather around a ring by the corniche in Fujairah to watch the traditional bullfight. It is a source of entertainment for locals and expatriates from other emirates. A running commentary adds to the excitement and helps create the atmosphere. Each fight is bloodless and lasts about a minute and the bull that manages to push his rival towards the edge of the fighting arena is declared the winner. The fight normally begins after Asr prayer and ends before sunset. Our Photographer Zarina Fernandes got a ringside view of the sport.
